As I'm skating back to the bench, I hear the ref call out the goal and the assists to the scorer and credits me with an assist. When he finished I told him I didn't touch the puck. He said, "I know, but without you there that goal never happens."
Is that just a ref being charitable, or can you really get an assist without touching the puck?
No you can't get one without touching the puck, ref is just being a good guy
